Wood Floor Gap Filling Service
What does it mean? It's placing small boards from the same tree if the holes between the floorboards. Sometimes we can use an adhesive or some professional product for proper filling of all gaps. We make a mixture with the sanded wood during the sanding to make a perfect adhesive for filling all the gaps.
There are two options for gap filling:
- Placing a mixture that includes sawdust and a homogeneous mixture (most popular method;
- A resin or a particular type of mixture designed to fill and stick holes in wooden floors or other wooden surfaces.
The gap filling can be done in different ways:
- Filling a gap up to 3mm with dust and resin;
- Using slivers for gaps with more than 3 mm width.
